Prestigious American magazine Travel and Leisure recognizes Inca metropolis and Lima in their World Best Awards 2019.
The American magazine noted that its readers chose Cusco as the favorite metropolis of Latin America after considering it a honeymoon destination, for its healthy and delicious cuisine or its history.
Similarly, in the same category of the World Best Awards 2019, Lima was considered in the top 10, along with cities such as Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Valparaíso, Bogotá, Cartagena, Quito, Mendoza and Antigua.
On the other hand, the Peruvian Inkaterra chain, which has properties in Cusco and Tambopata, is in third place in the category Best Hotel Brand in the World. In addition, other private sector companies such as the Tambo del Inka hotel and Sol y Luna received awards in other areas.
This is not the first time that Cusco has been distinguished as the favorite city of travelers surveyed by Travel and Leisure. In 2018, the Inca capital was also highlighted as a favorite destination by the prestigious American media.
